    Zergs Collection Skin Webby (Units)

    While this is an amazing pack, the lack of death/decay does hinder it quite a bit. My suggestion: make empty death sequences (basically all geosets become invisible within a few frames of the sequence start). Then make a blood explosion + ubersplat effect and use it as a shared spawn model on...

    Argent Crusade Doodad Pack

    These look great. Well-fitting for the wc3 human aesthetics. Couple of notes: Off the top of my head, a "single" wall piece (half of what you've got now) would be quite useful to make these more modular. The roof tile texture of the tower is wrapped around the whole thing from a top-down...

    [Campaign] Troll Campaign

    Here's the first preview of the level design for Chapter 4. The map will be divided into two, equally large parts, representing the same setting above and underground (Armies of Exigo style). A custom minimap UI will show the limits of each part in-game. The two parts will be connected through...

    One of the Chapter 3 submaps is a titanforged vault. It was fun giving the trolls some enemies and weapons beyond their forte.

    [Campaign] Troll Campaign

    Been a while, so a few updates: The Chapter 3 overmap is just about finished terrain and trigger-wise. The travel system for the submaps is now in place. The submaps themselves are still quite bare-bones at this stage, mostly level design work at the moment with triggering next on the agenda...

    [SD/Modeling] Looking for: Teamcolor Shard/Tip Attachment

    Here you go. Keep in mind, the game engine bugs out with team-colored attachments: they'll appear red when first applied. If you cycle through the ally team color modes next to the minimap or press alt+a twice the correct colors will display. Happy mapping!

    [Campaign] Troll Campaign

    The current idea is to have 5 playable chapters, an opening cinematic and an interlude. This will be considered Act 1 and released as a complete campaign. The story I have in mind is significantly longer, but in the interest of releasing content I have decided to compartmentalize it into Acts.

    [Campaign] Troll Campaign

    I actually went through several iterations of the campaign screen. One used an HD model, one used a 2D animation I made out of the vanilla WoW troll artwork. A lot of these versions ended up scrapped because of weird graphical issues more than anything else. Stuff was clipping through, visible...
